I was trying to get some close up of a few of my fish, particularly my Boesemani rainbows to see if I can get some help in identifying whether I have male or female. These are very active fish, occasionally I get one swimming in a current near the front glass, but usually by the time my smart phone is able to focus on it, it is gone.
I must have taken 80 pictures over the last two days. I have deleted 9/10 of them because all I ended up was relatively for shaped Blurs and a clearly focused back of the tank. Even the photos I kept well, the best I can say about them is they do not seem to glory or one of the fish in the picture is almost clear
Note I have an LG smart phone, and not one that was optimized towards photos, so I know that that is part of my problem. However, at the moment I cannot see dropping a lot of money on a better smart phone or on a separate digital camera, so I guess I am asking what techniques you may have that help you get good photos either of the tank as a whole or close-ups of your fish?
I have LED
lights and a 155 G bowfront tank, both of which probably impact this. I welcome any suggestions. I even welcome suggestions about relatively inexpensive improvements to this smart phone, not that I could not enact those now but something to look forward to later on.
